KXRM-TV went on air on Jan 22, 1985 as an independent service; RM in the calls signified its link with Rocky Mountains. It intended to hit the waves on the eve of Christmas in 1984 but couldn’t due to technical issues. It was Southern Colorado’s maiden independent service while also being the first independent channel to sign on air after the launch of KRDO 31 years ago. One year after making it into airs, the channel signed up with Fox as a Charter affiliate on Oct 6, 1986.
KXRM maintained its status as a locally-owned broadcaster until 2000 when Raycom Media acquired the asset. Following Raycom’s merger with Liberty Corporation, the channel was released to Barrington Broadcasting. It started taking content from Retro Television Network and aired it on its second digital sub-channel from Oct 11, 2007. Prior to that it would air The Tube’s music programming until its lay off on Oct 1, 2007. It then replaced RTV with a simulcast of KXTU on Sep 15, 2008. After undergoing the digital transition in 2010, the channel’s broadcasting radius was truncated to Pueblo and El Paso counties.
Barrington Broadcasting on Feb 28, 2013 revealed its plans to put its entire group on sale to Sinclair Broadcast Group; the deal consummated on Nov 25, 2013. The ownership was once again changed when Sinclair decided to sell a couple of its assets including KXRM to Media General in Aug 2014. In a swap deal KXRM and others were transferred to MG on Dec 19, 2014. Following the purchase of Media General by Nexstar on Jan 17, 2017, KXRM was shifted under the umbrella of Nexstar Media Group.
